    things that piss me off about my iPhone so far:

    • iSync
    • Calls go to voice mail when using EDGE
    • Can't view "age verification needed" videos on YouTube ( you have to be 18 to have the phone :ugh: )

    it depends what type of transfer it is doing, there is NOM1 and NOM2. depends on the towers and a slew of other shit, it also depends if you are transfering over EDGE as well at the moment

    Calls should not be going to voicemail when on EDGE, as EDGE is always on unless you are using WiFi. Something is wrong with the phone or your account.

    no, this is a documented issue. if you are composing an email, using safari, ect and it is using EDGE, it will take priority over an incoming call which will be sent to voicemail.

    Documented or not, something is not right. I get calls all the time while composing email or being on the net. The phone just closes the app and asks if I want to answer the call. If I do I get it, if not, it goes back to what I was doing.

    The Edge network is not capable of transferring data and voice at the same time like 3G is. However, the voice always should take precedent and should override anything else you are doing at the particular time.
